The Future of (Sustainable) Agriculture--Part 2 of 2

Fred Kirschenmann, a long-time leader in the sustainable agriculture movement, Distinguished Fellow at the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, and a third-generation farmer (an organic farmer himself), completes his thoughtful reflections upon the future of agriculture from his talk at the Organicology conference in Portland, Oregon. He begins with discussing the "third elephant" in the room- climate change. It's here already around the world in places such as Australia, China, California.
